The latest version of the British luxury yacht brand Sunseeker, Manhattan 63, has arrived in Ningbo after the order was made by a Ningbo hotel months ago.
This yacht also marks the 50th anniversary of Sunseeker International, a luxury yacht maker in the UK. The brand is known in China for its first Chinese mainland customer Charles Zhang, CEO of Sohu.com, a major Internet company in China.
The 21-meter yacht is one of the largest yachts Chinese customers have ever booked from the Sunseeker, with tailor-made Mahjong table, walnut furniture, and Bose Lifestyle stereo. The owner transformed the main bed-room into a Karaoke club.
Traugott Kaminski, CEO of Sunseeker China, said this yacht met the increasing needs of private gather-togethers among the rich in China.
"They can bathe and rest on the deck and fly-bridge, or even hold barbecue parties," Kaminski said. "It is what the rising millionaires need nowadays."
